To look closely at the sophisticated abstract art created by lichen and moss on tree bark, you would never guess that they are among the most primitive of plants.  Some botanists actually consider them pre-plant forms because they are not seed bearing.  Lichen and moss thrive in abundant rain, so I decided to make lemonade out of lemons and take some photos of their artistic achievements between the plentiful raindrops during this soggy summer.







  1. The natural color palette in these trees is zen-like soothing, as are the images.

    • That’s Mother Nature for you. I’ve also noticed how magnificent scattered leaves or fallen petals look, even though they appear to have landed randomly.

  2. What a comment!! Very informative… Looking for more posts like this!! Keep you the goodwork!
    Anyway thank you for this blog.

    • Thanks for your kind words.
